THE SCOTCH CONCERTS. A SUCCESSFUL SERIES. [Newspaper Article] — Corryong Courier — 18 June 1914
TIID SCOTCH CONCERTS. A SUCCESSFUL SERIES. When Scotchmen meet, the wide world o'er, The conversation turns To days o' happy childhood. In thu ltiml o' liobbie Burn3. So runs Harry Lauder's little song —familiar, pec ipedium oE a thousand . gramophones, to every quarter of the civilised world. And the old Scotti-h sentiment has the peculiar quality of infecting ail and sundry, irrespective of birth place and early tradition. Under Australian conditions it is only natural that "Caledonia, stern and wild" should become "Caledonia, gay and festive," but tha same old kindly sentiment prompts it all—"and what the wuiir are we 1" The reason of all this moralising is that (luring the past week the annual series of Scotch concerts took place in aid of the funds of the Presbyterian Church. Tha Fates were kind and provided a fine week for the series ; the promoters were enterprising and provided a good bill of fare each night; and apprecia tive audiences set tha seal of success upon the serie...

With a veritable carnival of elec tions looming in the future, and candidates to right of us and can didates to left of us preparing to "volley and thunder," an article embodying an improvement upon our State system of preferential voting comes opportunely from Mr J. P. Cummins, M.A., head teacher of Corryong State school. The present system of preferential vot ing, although admittedly a great step in advance of the block vote, is still far from perfect. In fact, most of our advanced thinkers pin their faith to proportional repre sentation as the only method of creating a Parliament which will be a true rellex of the political thought of the people. That system, how ever, necessitates the division of the State into multiple constituen cies. The improvement suggested by Mr ...
